1. Analysis of encrustation of double-J catheters with optical coherence tomography (OCT)

    Objective Encrustation of pigtail catheters with crystalline deposit of urine components is a well-known problem and in addition to lower urinary tract infection, the most common complication of any material placed in the urinary tract. There is neither any data about the beginning of encrustation in literature, nor about location or progression. The aim of this study is to make an analysis of the level of encrustation and to document the longitudinal progression with OCT.
